((Remember the rare event that I mentioned that has a minuscule chance to remove the morality module? You might have just passed it...))

Mini-update that has nothing to do with your actions, just a reminder for you:


Did you forget... about the ship...?

((This is probably a bad idea to do after I gave you toaster-related PTSD, but whatever.))

Out-logis the black hole, and use Einsteinian science to prove that it doesn’t exist. Revel in victory once it ceases to exist. Then engrave more slabs for deceased drones.

This may be a reach, but maybe we can make a machine that manipulates the laws of probability to make cookies out of nothing?

That's very out-of-reach.

Research a Finite Improbability Drive. Begin brewing an especially strong cup of tea.

The more joke suggestions there are, the longer the update takes to think through and type out! The mini-update was just a reminder, please select actions according to the previous one.

The HH2G reference seems to be fairly in line with the tone of the game. I would genuinely like to see if we could make an Improbability Drive.

So our current power generation is based off the generators using the gravity from the gravity rock to somehow create power? Then we should be able to take that design and convert it to operate the same way, but using the gravity of the nearby black hole as a source of power instead.

There might be an important difference between the anomalous gravity that the rocks cause and the raw mass of the black hole. The rocks push in just one direction, right?

Or it contains another power source inside of the rock.

Are the rocks drained by both our engines and by pulling on things? Or is their gravitational effect separate from their power source?

If we can pull everything in one direction for free just by putting them in range of the rocks, I'm sure we could work out a way to use that for a perpetual motion machine.

Since this is a small black hole...

1) Use the illumination of the accretion disk to determine the size and shape of the black hole's ergosphere. This will tell us how fast the black hole is rotating, and will allow us to properly calculate how best to harness the ergosphere to generate energy for us. With the illumination of the disk, and the spectroscopic data we have collected, we can determine the ergosphere geometry by measuring the hubble shift of the spectra.

We can use the ergosphere (if it is sufficiently big) along with short FTL jumps from the small alcubierre tech we reverse-engineered, to gain inertial mass energy. (We can accelerate objects at an over-unity rate), which we can then transform into useful mass with collision based fusion.  Excess energy released by the fusion process can be used to power our systems. We need to construct an appropriate reactor.

See also, "Penrose process"

2) Investigate correlation between gravity rock depletion and energy consumption rate.  Be sure to correct for nearby black hole's proximity.

Increase the Pseudovisual Spacial Representation's size to include the entire asteroid. Things are getting crowded in this corner, and I'd like to be able to build things far away from the main structure, in case they prove volatile.

Also I wanna see what our rock is shaped like~ ❤️

You need to find out, this can be a cruel game~

I think it's at the first page. It's a boring space potato.

Radiation storms will be a common occurrence as long as the black hole is eating something. Can range from annoying to catastrophic.
